July is Disability Pride Month, which celebrates and advocates for the rights of disabled people. If someone you love is disabled — as one in four Americans are — you might consider celebrating the month by volunteering with or donating to disability rights organizations. You can also be deliberate about shopping at businesses founded by disabled people, several of which we've highlighted below. We've also highlighted gift ideas for disabled adults, whether you're shopping for a birthday gift, a holiday gift, a wedding gift, or a just-because gift.
Obviously, just because a person is disabled doesn't mean you need to get them a disability-specific gift — you can get them a gift related to their hobbies or interests, as you would anyone in your life. But if you're feeling called to get them something that makes their life a little easier, we've got plenty of practical ideas here like adaptive clothing, unique kitchen devices, beauty and fashion products designed for those with mobility issues, and more. Every person's experience is different, but many of these gifts are created by people with disabilities, or have glowing reviews from people who are disabled. Several of these gifts would also be useful for people who have chronic illnesses, are recovering from an injury or accident, are in a care facility, or are neurodiverse.
Keep reading to see our recommendations for the best gifts for disabled adults, during Disability Pride Month and any day of the year.
